Watermelon Ice

"Easy way to use watermelon. Provided is two sets of directions, one for using an ice cream maker and the second is using the freezer and food processer. Prep time is the (4 hour) time watermelon needs to be in refrig or freezer before processing. Cook time is processing time. Adapted from Bon Appetit (May, 1983)."

  1. A cool flavorful delight for sweltering hot nights! Frist let me apologize as my photo does not show how light a fluffy this turns. This is such a refreshing dessert and the texture is turned out just the way you described light and fluffy. Made using Splenda and the food processor method, the secret is only to process only small batches a time. Thanks so much for the post, will be making again.
  2. This tasted great and a plus is that it is also healthy. The kids and adults all loved it. I refrigerated the puree overnight and then used my ice cream maker and it came out wonderful. Everyone asked when I was making it again...thanks!


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
